Summary

“Everyone remembers their corner milk bar: the milkshakes, the memories and the mixed lollies. Chock-a-block, richly nostalgic and colourfully illustrated. The Milk Bars Book will take you back to those hot summer afternoons when you met your mates at the milk bar and spent your hard-earned pocket money on a bag of mixed lollies, an ice cream or a milkshake, the place of childhood dreams. Documenting these sweet and colourful family run institutions, author and photographer Eamon Donnelly has dedicated over a decade to capturing the faded facades, sun-kissed signage and inviting interiors of milk bars and corner shops from all over Australia. Featuring photography of shopfronts, signage and interiors, archival ads of snacks and sweets, the history of the milk bar and family memories from behind the countertop, The Milk Bar Book celebrates an iconic Australian invention that for generations has helped shape our suburbs, supported our communities, contributed to our diverse culture and given generations of children that glorious childhood experience of the milk bar. … Take a trip down memory lane to the days when there was a friendly milk bar on every corner.”“Everyone remembers their corner milk bar: the milkshakes, the memories and the mixed lollies.
